What will we be doing?
Over the 3 days, you will be spending time in a supportive environment to explore deeper issues around the reasons why it’s sometimes hard to build the relationship we all want with our children.
You will get insights on your relationship dynamics, new skills and tools necessary to build the meaningful connection that parents need to thrive, along with gaining a community of people to help and support you.
At the end of the 3 days you will:
Acquire tools to bring back the joy to your parenting and build resilience in your children
Walk away with the confidence to be the kind of parent you really want to be
Leave refreshed ― ready again to enter the wonderful & crazy world we call parenting
We believe that parents are natural leaders within their families and their communities. When they truly understand how to listen and connect with their children, they will raise a generation of involved, creative, visionary problem solvers who will transform the world.
Join us today and be part of a world of warm, loving families where parents are supported and responsive to the needs, fears, hopes and dreams of their children.
